A simple French dish that amounts to indulgent cheesy potatoes. They go beautifully with a roast guinea fowl on Easter Sunday.
- 1.2 kg floury potatoes
- 1 vegetable stock cubes (we like Knorr)
- 25g butter
- 50g gruyere, grated
- Preheat the oven to 180c/fan160c /gas 4. Lightly butter a shallow 2 litre ovenproof dish. Slice the potatoes as thinly as you can, or use a mandolin if you have one, leaving the peel on. Layer the potatoes in the buttered dish, seasoning between layers.
- Dissolve the stock cube in 500ml boiling water and pour over the potatoes. Dot with butter and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the foil and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for a further 15 minutes, until golden.
